Liability and Damages
There are two basic
elements in every personal injury case:
liability and damages. You must prove before you
can recover damages that the other person was
negligent. Once you resolve that issue the
amount of damages becomes important.
Grounds of Personal Injury Claims
damages can be established on several bases.
Negligence - When a
case is filed for the failure or omission of
another we call that a tort. This is where the
defendant is accused of causing the injury by
failing to prevent it. An example would be an
accusation that a property owner failed to clear
ice off a sidewalk. Another example would be
someone who was speeding and caused an accident.
Intentional Wrong -
Intentional wrongs can sometimes be brought as
civil, personal injury claims apart from any
criminal charges the defendant may be facing.
